Atiku, Obi told to release academic records to public or risk lawsuit

A group of well-meaning Nigerians under the aegis of Beta Naija on Thursday asked the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, to end his chastening chase of shadows over the transcript and academic records of President Bola Tinubu from Chicago State University (CSU).

The group which made the remarks in a statement signed by its spokesman, Mustafa Ahmed Tijani, and Director General, Etinosa Igiebor.

The statement partly reads, “We expect him (Atiku) to busy himself with how to prove that he won the February Presidential Election at the Supreme Court, rather than this fishing expedition he is currently on. Instead of proving that he won the election, he is busy spending his fraudulently earned dollars on expensive lawyers to prove a matter that is not in doubt at all.

“The statement reads: It is laughable that people with questionable track records both in public service and private practice are on the chase of President Tinubu, whose academic, administrative prowess, and leadership capacity have been proven both locally and internationally.

“Just so we are clear, President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is not seeking admission into Atiku Abubakar’s privately-owned university, which only came into existence after his time in office as Vice President. So, one wonders what he intends to do with the President’s transcript and certificate at this time. In any case, should Atiku Abubakar be in a generous mood, he may want to extend a free admission offer to members of his own party, as he only needs to look to Osun State to find a worthy beneficiary of such unsolicited generosity.

“However, we are glad that the matter has been laid to rest as Caleb Westberg, the University Registrar at CSU, said in a deposition and under oath, that President Bola Ahmed Tinubu is a graduate of CSU and was issued a certificate after graduating from the school with honours.

“His words, “I see that he said the same person he (Atiku Abubakar) ran against is now the President of Nigeria, Bola Tinubu who attended Southwest College and took accounting courses. Bola Tinubu who attended CSU also took accounting courses. I see the address indicated for Bola Tinubu. It’s not far from CSU (campus).

They argued that the political terrain has been overtaken by the needless and ultimately fruitless drama created by the former Vice President in his attempt to turn facts on its head and seemingly empty the Atlantic Ocean with a spoon.
